Imbabura or known as the Lakes Province is absolutely one of the favorite tours on visitor’s trips while in Ecuador. The main attraction is Otavalo Market. It is a massive Saturday crafts market (But there is a market every day too) – one of the biggest of South America! Tons of traditionally-attired Quechua locals take over the streets of the whole town center, selling beautiful artwork, handicrafts, livestock, and clothing, anything you can imagine! You will also LOVE the food at Cotacachi also known as the Leather Town, and all the great but cheap restaurants around town. The waterfall that after a short walk ,you will be impressed by its beauty .Finally amazing views of the Andes on the way back to Quito. We invite you to join us to this very colorful tour with a local taste

Alejandro was our guide, and he was fantastic. He had so much knowledge about the area, and really created authentic experiences for us. He even adapted as we went, as my mother being older and maybe not as agile as needed for the waterfalls portion of the trip, he offered to take us instead to a store on the outskirts of Otovalo, where they still hand make their goods. Mom loved it!
Great Tour today

Had a fantastic day with Renato hitting some great viewpoints and areas of the Andes. Was able to finish early and stop at an extra point of intrest as well, highly recommend.
